‘The Flesh Is All You Have If You Mortify That There Is No Hope For You’ BY PHEOBE COLLINGS-JAMES

DoBeDo contributor Phoebe Collings-James is having a solo exhibition at Ritter/Zamet.

The show’s title is inspired by the wise and endlessly rich oeuvre of seminal American writer James Baldwin. It thus sets the tone and mood for Collings-James’ exhibition and her continuous concern with racial and gender-based inadequacies played out against the austere, formal language of minimalism. Violence, sex and desire are subliminal in these artworks; they are at once beguiling and unsettling, seemingly fragile yet laden with menace.

TITLE: The Flesh Is All You Have If You Mortify That There Is No Hope For You
DATE: 11 October – 23 November 2013, Opening reception on Friday 11 October 6 – 9pm
LOCATION: RITTER/ZAMET, Unit 8, 80a Ashfield Street London E1 2BJ
